More holiday books

Towards the end of the first tour in Germany, I was eyeing off the tour guide's book that he was reading - Raise the Titanic!  This guy reads through books every couple of days on tour, and was happy to give me not only that book, but also the next book he finished - Gray Mountain.  So those books kept me going til the end of the Scandanvia trip (I read a lot less on those because SCENERY!).

I was actually reading Raise the Titanic! on the ferry between Stockholm and Helsinki.  Another surreal book reading experience right there. I mostly enjoyed the book, except for the several-page long tidy up of answering all the questions of everything that happened at the climax - much like in the Harry Potter books.  Quite a few "yeah right" moments along the way too - like they seriously thought they could not only seal up *all* the holes - that includes all of the top decks which were never meant to be sealed - but not have it all implode from the water pressure at that depth??  hrmmmmm.  Still, it was an enjoyable enough read.

The other was John Grisham's Gray Mountain.  Somewhat depressing knowing all that stuff is going on in real life.  And like real life, the story really doesn't end.  It would have been nice to have some sort of epilogue to find how how some of the bigger stories ended for the characters, if not for the real life situation.. but I suppose that's life ..
